Senate Briefings: Highlights from Weekly ASUSF Senate Meetings

Weekly SLE Newsletter Approved

For administrative reasons, the university has discontinued sending emailed announcements labeled “USFconnect message” on upcoming student events on campus. Therefore, ASUSF senate has created an SLE Newsletter to be sent out weekly to the entire community, highlighting all upcoming events on campus. To have events included in the newsletter, all clubs and other university programs can send event postings and information to SLE. Students also have the option to unsubscribe from the newsletter, if they do not want weekly emails from SLE. Greg Wolcott, director of student leadership & engagement, said, “We want to also change the name of the newsletter, any and all ideas are welcome.”
